Happy Sunday folks- It’s been a stressful couple of days.

On Friday night, I had big plans to grab dinner and drinks out with some friends at this bar downtown in the center of Columbus. However, an hour before I had set off to leave, I was getting messages saying this blog was down and that an error was showing up. I checked it out and sure enough, it was sending everyone errors and page now found messages.

Not only that, it wouldn’t even let me log in the back end.

I’m not even over exaggerating when I say from 6pm EST until 1.30am EST Saturday, I was on the phone with my host six times and at the same time, pestering my mates who work in the IT engineering field as to how to fix this issue. On top of that, I was emailing back and forth with a WordPress ‘Fix it’ consultant to see where it could be stemming from. After hours or going back and forth and hitting a brick wall, I was advised by my host to switch to a private server, as opposed to the shared one I had used since the very start of this blog.

A benefit of switching to this new server is that YOU as the reader should see a faster load time and more seamless control on this site. As always, I truly appreciate your readership and support and it’s moments like those scenarios where you truly realize just how important the back-end functioning of your blog is.

Anyway, let’s not re-live that nightmare, especially when there is an epic recipe to share today.

PS- Because my server was down, you may have missed this epic recipe for Healthy Sticky Cinnamon Roll Baked Oatmeal. Also, Giveaway including a cash prize here. 2. Giveaway for a recipe recommendation here

Mum, I’m sorry.

“Arman, don’t think I didn’t see your pumpkin food last week.”

“Oh mother. You’ve been reading on here, right?”

“No……..Also, how dare you reference Cinderella’s pumpkin to me.”

I’m not even going to start rambling about how the blog arena has been inundated with all things pumpkin, apples and caramel. I’m totally honing in on it too and am not ashamed one bit. I’m also not ashamed that I’ve bought 12 cans of pumpkin in the last month.

Beta-Carotene tan, here I come.

I’ve been a huge fan of single serve cookie dough recipes for quite some time now, especially for breakfast.

It’s what inspired the original breakfast cookie dough back from 2014 which lead to a paleo version which lead to a double chocolate paleo version. Pumpkin, being the cheeky little (insert word of choice here) thing, wanted in on the action and of course, had to be one notch above the rest. Here I present you- Healthy Pumpkin Cookie Dough for one. Those whom are all about delicious food and NOT in measley quantities- This one is for you.

This healthy pumpkin cookie dough for one is no joke- It is legitimately something you could actually eat for every single meal of the day. It’s packed full of fiber, some healthy fats and there is an option (I really recommend it!) to make it high protein. It has the taste and texture of a pumpkin spiced cookie dough but without the added sugars, oils or the lovely HFCS monster which enjoys appearing on the packaged offerings. Naturally gluten-free and paleo, it’s also suitable for my vegan friends as there are NO eggs in it- Nada! (Also those who find the thought of eating raw cookie dough gross because of the uncooked eggs- Something I am NOT guilty of)

I mentioned earlier that there is a high protein option and I really do recommend it- Depending on the brands you use (I tried it with three different protein powders -A vegan, casein and paleo friendly blend), it really thickens up the batter and I didn’t even need to add the optional dairy free milk- The texture (as pictured) was ON point. Also- The pictures don’t lie- That is ONE serving and a larger than normal sized cereal bowl.

Make this delicious healthy pumpkin cookie dough for ONE and devour the entire serving. Then giggle to yourself because you pretty much ate a balanced breakfast in dessert form.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • In a mixing bowl, combine the pumpkin, protein powder, flour of choice and sweetener and mix very well.
  • In a small microwave-safe dish or stovetop, melt the nut butter with the maple syrup and add to the pumpkin mixture until fully incorporated.
  • Using a tablespoon, add dairy free milk of choice until desired consistency is reached.

Notes

* Depending on which flour you use, you may not need the dairy free milk
** I used sweetened protein powder so omitted. Adjust accordingly
The longer it sits in the fridge, the thicker it becomes. I love prepping it the night before purely for this reason- I find I don't even need the extra dairy free milk.
This can be frozen and thawed before consumption.

  1. Love, I feel most terrible that you’re having such issues. But on the flip side, your pictures are SO on point. Like I could pluck one of those Splenda choc chips right from the screen!!! Coming over to scratch your back bai. I’ll bring Mo.

  2. I eat pumpkin year round, so this season doesn’t phase me. I will make this tomorrow. yes. blog down? that DOES phase me, immediately. sorry that happened, good to be on your own server, yes? so much ROOOOOM. 😉

  3. I have only had issues when moving from Blogger to WP. The pictures went all wonky. Other than that it’s been smooth (knock on wood). Now. About this cookie dough: Freaking genius! I love love cookie dough and pumpkin sounds great! I have so many favorite desserts, but right now I’m craving Cheesecake Factory’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake.

    1. Geebuz, don’t even remind me of that time. I still can’t believe I went from blogger to WP shared to WP self hosted…Worst.

      I love the Cheesecake factory- Their meals could feed an army, or just one of me 😀

  4. I just want to grab a spoon and dig into this! Seriously. This is like the perfect Fall dessert…and it’s healthified, too! Well done! So don’t let your hosting company con you into a private sever. I mean they are helpful I hear once you hit a certain number of pageviews, but I feel like a private server is the equivalent of our school nurse’s recommendation to drink Gatorade and take an aspirin. It’s like I don’t know what the problem is, so I’m just going to give you a generic answer…and conveniently, the generic answer in this case also costs a lot of money. Time to start looking for a new host I say! Maybe you can send the new hosting company some of this cookie dough…just to be nice. 🙂

  5. Duuuude what sort of mad genius have I stumbled upon??! Pumpkin cookie dough <33333 yeah, you can just pass that bowl over here thank you very much ;D

    …Eeek tech issues are the worst. I just had a very similar issue to deal with this past week. Turns out our WP host subscription expired. Fortunately, we were back up and running in just a couple hours. This single serve deliciousness would definitely help alleviate the stress though…well, at least for me it would!

    Toodles,
    Tammy<3

  6. Eek what a headache! Glad it all got sorted out.

    I caved and bought a can of pumpkin this weekend but haven’t used it yet. I’m afraid that once I do, the floodgates will open and it will be ALL THE PUMPKIN from now until the spring haha.

  7. Tech issues are the worst. I have been thru several hosting services and several nightmares. Thankfully I am thrilled with the cusotmer service of my current service. Knock on wood, but I haven’t had any serious issues in a long time. 12 cans of pumpkin…you have been busy. Pumpkin cookie dough sounds pretty yummy!

  8. This is incredible! Making it. The ‘beta-carotine tan’ made me laugh. A few years ago, my diet consisted of so much sweet potato and carrots that my skin took on a rather orange hue… saved me a lot of money on fake tan 😉

  9. Love this idea! Just one clarification…for the added protein…was it a flavored protein? I normally use chocolate protein for my shakes but I’m not sure how chocolate protein powder would taste with this recipe..

  10. I stumbled upon this recipe on Pinterest yesterday, and knew that I had to swing by the grocery store for a can of pumpkin to make this for breakfast today. Be still, my pumpkin-lovin’ heart! It was absolutely delicious! I shared a couple of bites with my 5 year old daughter…only a couple, and she loved it too. She even requested her own serving next time. Needless to say, I’m now following you on Pinterest and look forward to enjoying many more of your delicious and healthy creations. Thank you for this morning’s breakfast and for the future meals to come.

  11. Love this, and am going to make it! Does the nut butter do anything important? I only really peanut butter and don’t feel like making anything (and don’t have the budget to buy healthy nut butters). Thoughts on leaving it out or does it maintain the consistency?

  12. I made this with coconut flour and chocolate protein powder. It was good! I ended up halving the recipe and I was still super stuffed (half the recipe seems to be around 350 calories?). Might even 1/4 it for evening dessert treats. Maybe I have a small stomach. It’ll be good fuel for a run in a bit 🙂

  13. This was good! I agree that the recipe made quite a lot, and I really felt that it needed salt after giving it a taste, so I added a little bit and mixed it in. thanks for the inspiration!

  14. *swoon* You’re my hero. This was soooooo good. I added lots of cinnamon and some ginger, mace, nutmeg, and clove…and freeze dried cranberries…aaaand maybe a few white chocolate chips. I can’t wait to try more of your recipes!

  15. Hi! I just had a question; would it be possible to decrease the amount of protein powder? I like the kind that I have, but it can be a bit overpowering.

  16. This looks delicious … But contains mega calories! (Almost all i try to eat in one entire day! at the moment, that is…) Maybe you could create a version under 200 calories, so recipes like this would be accessible to more people. I think many more people would use them.
